Re: Panic Buying

Texas has the Castle Doctrine Laws. I keep a 2,000 lumen flashlight beside my bed. I want to see what I am shooting. If the burglar freezes and drops whatever weapon they have as soon as I turn on the flashlight, they can take their chances in court. If they try to attack me, they can take their cha...

With more than 500 foot pounds of energy, it should be enough for deer out to 50 yards. The rifle load has even more power and velocity. The rifle load has accounted for many deer, a...

A .30-30 is a good rifle/cartridge combination for deer and hogs at short range to about 200 yards. It is one of those combinations which may not be perfect for any 1 particular set of variables, but it works well on a large range of variables.
